ARVADA, Colo. (KDVR) — Arvada Police are sharing a warning about two thieves who have targeted unsuspecting shoppers in local stores.   

The thieves are using an old tried and true trick of grabbing a shopper’s valuables when the shopper isn’t looking. In one case, investigators said the thieves allegedly stole a shopper’s credit card and quickly went on a $10,000 shopping spree.

Police have released a security video of the thieves, two women, in action at a Costco store on Wadsworth Boulevard.

The video shows the pair casually walking through the store. Then, when a shopper turns their back and leaves their cart unattended, the thieves move in.

The video shows the thieves grabbing a wallet and valuables from the cart. Other images from security cameras show close-ups of the women either entering or leaving the store.
